Yes and trying to figure out when which errors appear that allows  
"us" (coders) to fix the problems faster. There was a problem with  
the suspend on the last OWrt image which meant I couldn't use the  
phone as my daily but I am optimistic that this will be solved soon  
and thus enjoy my own bugs on a daily basis and fix them :)
